    Functions
    Linux 2.6 kernel
     The device-mapper framework of Linux kernel v2.6 defines and delivers a fully new I/O architecture for Linux, where accesses and drivers/adapters technology are hidden to end-users, so provides a common user visibility and interface to devices.
    This kernel extension has a modularized architecture, where specialized modules can be added to insert new features in the I/O path, such as mirroring, snapshot, cryptography and multipathing. They all provide the basic code, inside the Linux kernel, to deal with these functions, and relay on external user-space packages and applications for configuration, administration and management.
    Device mapper comprehensive tuning
     The StoreWay MultiPath for Linux product relies on the multipathing module delivered besides the device-mapper, providing the right installation and configuration procedures.
    Documentation explains how to use the device-mapper devices directly in application, or thru the volume manager.
    High availability SCSI3 reservation support
     The SCSI reservation feature includes a configuration file, GUI or command-line interface for configuration and displaying, and the interface specification for inclusion into existing products. It provides full SCSI-3 reservation mechanisms: shared/exclusive reservation setting on disk devices using reservation keys, a break-reserve command, and status displaying command.
